Families of the victims of 9/11 gathered in New York to remember their loved ones on the 20th anniversary of the attack.

President Biden was joined by former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

At 08:46 local time, a tolling bell marked the time the first plane struck the Twin Towers.

Bells also rang out at the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Relatives of the victims read aloud the names of their loved ones.

George W. Bush, who was president at the time of the attacks spoke at a memorial service.

George W. Bush, US President, 2001 to 2009: “I come without explanations or solutions. I can only tell you what I’ve seen.

On America’s day of trial and grief, I saw millions of people instinctively grab for a neighbor’s hand, and rally to the cause of one another.

That is the America I know.

And whenever we need hope and inspiration, we can look to the skies and remember, God bless.”
